Keep taking your pills all in order-do not skip any active pills...did you miss any pills -sometimes that can cause you to start your period early...also-maybe put a call in to your doc- if you didn't miss any pills,you shouldn't start your period while still taking active pills

What should you do if i've accidentally been taking the blue active pills during the week i should be taking sugar pills?

First, be reassured that you haven't increased your risk of pregnancy if you haven't missed pills earlier in the month. But I can't figure out where you got active pills during the week you should have been taking sugar pills. If you mean you started the next pack early, then you will need a refill a week earlier than you thought. Continue with that new pack, taking one pill per day. If you had a week of active pills left in last month's pack, then you must have missed pills that month, and you may be at risk for pregnancy. Contact your health care provider to learn about your options.
